Never before in the long history of the Yawkey Baseball League have so many teams offered enough talent to make a run for the Post Season with just three days left. It has been fun, frustrating and exhilarating for the teams struggling to make a GO for 8 play off spots.
Also, the Tarpey Conference Championship race has four teams at or near the top of the pack. Al Thomas, West Roxbury, McKay Club are tied at 36 Points. South Boston has 34 and South End has 34 with a chance at the title and playoffs.
